In his new PBS show “America Outdoors with Baratunde Thurston,” comedian and civic educator Baratunde Thurston explores this question, uncovering America’s complicated and passionate relationship to the outdoors, both in rural and urban settings. He speaks with Jenn White, host...

In the first of a two-part discussion, experts explain the Supreme Court’s 1973 Roe v. Wade decision, which is widely misunderstood: What did Roe actually hold? And now that the Court has issued its much-anticipated Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health ruling, what is the current legal landscape with regard to abortion? In the second part, panelists explore a world after Dobbs. What are the contours and constitutionality of new state laws designed for the post-Roe era? Do any protections remain...

Fifty years ago, the nation was (gradually, then suddenly) rocked by revelations of dirty tricks in what became known as the Watergate scandal. But it wasn’t the first time that our government deceived its citizens, and it certainly wasn’t the last. From false narratives promoting war to deliberate lies meant to undermine elections, has deception come to be seen as a legitimate political tool? And is there any way for us to stop it?\r \r This conversation was part of the 2022 Aspen Ideas...

From the Aspen Ideas Festival, recorded Tuesday, June 26, 2018. Jordan Peterson, author of the best-selling 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, may be one of the most famous intellectuals in North America today. He also may be among the most misunderstood. His fans say that he’s saved their lives, and detractors say that he’s the gateway drug to the alt-right.

Cities’ identities are made and remade over time by their cultures, but is a city’s cultural identity integral to its survival? When infrastructure is crumbling, public education funding has flagged, and the world of art and culture is accessible on any device with an Internet connection, is there still a specific, irreplaceable value inherent in the cultural identity of a metropolis? And even if there is, when the issue becomes one of numbers—and specifically one of money or jobs—how...

2012 Aspen Ideas Clip from 'Arab Spring: 18 Months Later'. Where are we 18 months in? Could an observer of the Arab World two years ago have envisioned a presidential election in Egypt with a Muslim Brotherhood candidate winning in the presidency, a state of civil war in Syria, an overthrown dictatorship in Tunisia, Muammar Gaddafi killed? No one predicted what is going on. But more importantly, is the Arab World on a path to democracy? Is it going toward a better future? Or is it hitting...

Our coffee makers, phone chargers, washing machines — our lives — are powered by the humble flip of a switch or press of a button. And it’s easy to lose sight of where the energy that powers our everyday conveniences comes from. Fossil fuels, predominantly through transportation and electricity, account for roughly 74 percent of US greenhouse gas emissions. As the principal instigator of the climate crisis, how can society transform the way in which we power our world? Can we decarbonize...

In the last decade, the people of democratic societies across the globe have elected autocratic leaders. These populist strongmen have undermined democratic institutions with a disregard for the rule of law, expertise, and the truth. Is their election the symptom of already advanced societal illnesses, or is it the disease itself? In countries where the damage to democracy is incremental, from where will the urgency to address this challenge come? And where autocratic leaders have exacerbated...

Pick your issue: academic achievement, drug use, female empowerment, race relations, obesity, mental health, medical costs. Engaging young people in sports can help communities tackle all of these, and many more. What’s more, it can yield benefits like community cohesion, citizen engagement, economic productivity, urban development, and help foster social-emotional skills like resilience and teamwork, respect for your opponents, and the rule of law. Give a kid a quality sport experience, and...

Two-thirds of American workers do not have a four-year college degree. In an increasingly tech-driven economy, how can we ensure that a lack of higher education isn’t a roadblock for this huge part of the population and, likewise, that talent shortages aren’t barriers to business and economic growth? What are the most innovative ways to upskill, reskill, or next-skill workers for the jobs of the future? Should employers screen talent by education and credentials, or demonstrated skill? How...

You know his work: the iPod, the iPhone, the Nest. What you might not know is that Tony Fadell — a top Silicon Valley designer, engineer, entrepreneur, and mentor — is not the kind of tech leader who is on a constant mission to break things.

The largest Black-led financial institution in the United States, with approximately $1 billion in assets, City First Bank pales in comparison to, say, Wells Fargo, with $1.97 trillion based on sheer assets at its disposal. Collectively, the 21 Black-led financial institutions across the US hold but $4.5 billion in assets to give a sense of scale. The imbalance in share of assets across the nations’s banks is stark. This said, much can be done to reset this imbalance. Combine the power of a...

Inflation has reached heights not seen in four decades. While the Russia–Ukraine conflict has played a role, prices were already marching upward as the nation emerged from COVID lockdowns. Gasoline prices are at all-time highs, and many other items are registering double digit increases. Inflation pushed the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates sooner than expected, leading the stock market into a sharp decline. Has inflation peaked, and how fast is it likely to go down? Does Washington...

Demand for carbon offsets — from both consumers and companies — is higher than ever. Consumers like buying them to offset their own carbon footprints, and corporations rely heavily on them to achieve net-zero goals until their supply chains can truly decarbonize. But a lack of transparency from some carbon-offset projects have given offsets a patchy reputation. What is the best way to understand if your carbon offset is really working? Are direct air capture offsets more reliable than ones...
